As we go into the autumn season, the final stretch of the VLN championship is here. 145 cars are scheduled to start today’s 58. ADAC Reinoldus-Langstreckenrennen.
In qualifying this morning, Walkenhorst Motorsport won pole position with a time of 7:55.468 set by Jordan Tresson in the closing minutes of the session—the team’s second pole in just as many races. Next to the number 35 Walkenhorst Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 on the front row of the grid starts the number 22 Wochenspiegel Team Monschau Ferrari 488 GT3 of Jochen Krumbach, who set a fastest time of 7:55.589. He was only 0.121 seconds slower than Tresson. Maro Engel in the Black Falcon Mercedes-AMG GT3 and Tresson’s team-mate David Pittard who drives the sister Walkenhorst BMW, also managed to stay within a second of the pole-sitter.
The weather today is forecast to be cloudy in the afternoon with temperatures not rising above 14 degrees Celsius.
